Ice Queen and I did a day trip to B'East last year and really enjoyed. On Sunday we were able to get up there for the first time this year. Our first impression was reinforced, B'East rocks. There are no high speed lifts but lift lines are short and skier density on the trails is low. The blacks off the main triple are real blacks. There's some nice mellower terrain. The lodge is pretty basic but the dining area has huge windows that look out at the skiing. The place just has a low key, friendly, warm feel. We met SkiMangoJazz for lunch and did several runs with him and a few other locals in the afternoon. SMJ was very gracious waiting for a slow poke like me to make my way down. I could happily ski B'East with some frequency. Berkshire East is just fun. Hope to make it back soon.
